Impact Teens Goldsboro Incorporated, is a federally tax-exempt 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that was founded by brothers, Khalil J. Cobb, and Ja'Shawn Faire. An onslaught of repeated gun violence, in which teenagers were victims of gunfire, is what sparked the desire to take action. The organization was created to fill an underlying need for gang intervention, conflict resolution, leadership development, and interpersonal skills. Unfortunately, we are at a time when African American youth are in peril, being as such it was imperative that we began an initiative aimed at mental and spiritual growth, as well as accountability, so as to develop a roadmap to success.
Impact Teens helped me fulfill my passion of helping others. I believe our work in the community truly changed the narrative around the next generation while providing a positive influence on teens who want to live a successful and prosperous life.
